Willy Conor's Attic

WILLY CONOR'S ATTIC and Other Places; Fifty Years of Collecting Art, 

(Published May 2014)


A chance meeting with the artist William Conor in 1962, and an invitation to root

 round his attic,  led to the author's first ever purchase of a work of art. Over 50 years the

 vagaries of a career in  journalism  aided in the acquisition of paintings and prints from many countries.

This book is both a catalogue  of some 200 items, and the story of how they were found.
